Kawasaki Ninja 250 vs. Yamaha YZF-R250

Quote:
Successful there must not dibiarin too long. Perhaps that slogan is happening in bikez market. Kawasaki Ninja 250R after successful almost in all parts of the world. finally invites other competitors to also taste the 250cc market segment. Yamaha own party so optimiz, in the 250cc segment product Yamaha YZF-R250 can compete with the Kawasaki Ninja 250R. Moreover product Yamaha YZF-R125 proved quite successful in the market. From its design and performance was quite promising.

Body used in YZF-R250 is almost exactly like the YZF-R125. The main difference is only yaagh engine. Rumors that the engine about what that will be used. to be grafted on the YZF-R250 new. Yes any enginenya. I think the design YZF-R250 the exact YZF-R125. Has its own characteristics and can compete with the Ninja 250R.

According to Kawasaki I must quickly take steps to utilize the 'first mover' market especially in Indonesia. Currently in the consumer's mind is still confusion of the issue price and a fairly long indent. Not to mention, because there is no competition, some dealers have started to use the existing demand. to start up the price. If this keeps up. beware of the negative effects that occur going from 'first mover'. where the consumer going to leave. when there is a tempting option.

Is Yamaha working on a Ninja Killer for the US? Actually, would it really be a Ninja Killer? I personally would welcome some compition from rival manufactures to help fuel the aftermarket for the quater Liter bike market..

I will admit that if the Yamaha YZF-R250 comes to the US looking like the R125 above, it’ll be a very attractive bike to compete with the Ninja 250R… Wonder if Yamaha can match the price / performance of the Ninja… I guess only time will tell, but Yamaha, Suzuki, KTM, etc. would have to be high on glue not to intorduce some comptition..

V-twin, air cooled, riding position modeled over a triumph design and I can ride it 800miles and still ride to the track the next day.

Everything on it is over-simplified, overs more ammenities like hazard, flash to pass etc that my suzukis didnt offer;

Easily gets to 80mph, 101 top indicated speed w me (220lbs) in full leathers/gear(add 35lbs.)

Total build w xenon lights, alarm, suspension, carbs, intake, exhaust, stickers(very important), undertail, tires, chain, all the other small mods, registration:

just under $3k... Full coverage insurance is $500/yr and less if I shop around.


Granted I dont have an R250 to do the same to, but that right there is a good reason I'd keep the Hyo

(plus when I blow it up, I can get full engine/trans on ebay for $400 shipped

The picture looks nice, but it's only a picture. No specs, no road side reviews, no reliability rating. (at least not yet in this post) I'll keep rocking my 250R. Nothing against anyone who loves the Yami, but after almost a year with my 250R I'm not even close to wanting to give her up.

I'll chime in like Cali:
I can get her up to 101 mph (if I wanted to/eventually/possibly/someday-on-a-track) and so far she's gotten 55-64mph depending on my speed. No chain/engine mods. . . yet! But some mods so far are xenon's on her and lopped off the end. If my engine blows up ( forbid) kawi will replace it for me.

Oh and reading that article hurt my brain.

Thanks for taking the time to respond, i figured you had good reasoning behind your statement. If you search Hyosung around here, I've always stood behind their product and defended the unfounded bashing. I spent 3 years behind the parts/service counter at a large cycle shop and had seat time on 250cc demo bikes long before a lot of people. Their products are simple and effective at their price point IMO. Fit and finish could be marginally better, but I'm more of an "all go" than "all show" sort of person so it doesn't really matter. I bet your "big bike" control has improved since you've been hammering on the 1/4 litre too!!! Keep it up!

My biggest concern was reliability. A bike isnt any good if its going to leave you stranded.

They seem to have engineered the bike for a tech, not for mass production. Otherwise yes, the hardware is where they skimped, no joke whatsoever.
